Note the face (and especially the eyes) of the “excitement!” woman are very symmetrical. A bit unusual compared to most human faces (compare it with other facial close-ups on this web site). Such symmetry is very appealing to look at. A great model and a really great photo.

Lighting workshop at Dobbs Ferry was awesome. Lots of information. Watched the Master’s “thinking process” Also ” Hands on” activity. Hope Joe is back at Dobbs Ferry again.

Great shots…Getting ready for a shot at this myself…the location in Montgomery is gonna rock. Not to mention the models we’ve lined up, Civil Rights Icons, politicians and G.R.I.T.S. and of course a good ol’ boy. The bus service from the Atlanta airport is probably going to give in for a few good shots too. KG

Hey Joe,

Awesome photos, not that I would expect less from you and one of your workshops. I really wish you would come south more often, but I am watching your workshop itinerary for when you do.

Greg Brave says:

Happy birthday Joe!
I liked the “excitement” photo the most. Great orange back lighting, and genuine facial expression. Other two had less natural looks.
Thank you for sharing your work!

Cool pics! Always inspiring images and info on your blog Joe. Got the chance to see you live once in Norway, and even though it was a rather quick show, and not a workshop, it was both very fun and inspiring. How’bout throwing one of your excellent workshops here in Norway some time soon?!
